Today’s wedding is a cacophony of deep and rich autumnal colours – and we absolutely love it. The aisle, made from Persian rugs and leaves, has to be one of the best wedding walkways I’ve ever seen, whilst the open side of the barn creates an amazing indoor-outdoor feel. Utterly gorgeous. Throw into the mix vegetarian street food, a naked Waitrose-bought wedding cake, a bead embellished Needle & Thread dress and a surprise mariachi band – oh, and a couple of pugs! – for a knockout set of nuptials. Enjoy.
Kat and Ed’s big day at Pennard House is so much more than just a stunning wedding. Yes, it is bright and beautiful, with colourful dahlias and clear September skies. Sure, bride Kat looks ravishing in her Alexander Wang racerback dress and red Nicholas Kirkwood shoes. And yes, the food by Caroline Gent Events and the unlimited crepes served from a beautifully restored 1970’s Citroen HVan sound mouth watering. But do you know what is most impressive? Kat and Ed planned all of this is only three months. That’s correct, they spent just 9 weeks planning their wedding. And, it’s perfect.
One of the biggest trends this year when it comes to wedding food, has been the grazing board. Not only do they look utterly gorgeous, but they are plentiful, delicious and just begging to be delved into, fork in one hand, plate in the other. There’s nothing like relaxed, shared dining to break the ice and get your guests chatting, laughing and having a wonderful time.
The reason I’m salivating over grazing boards, is because this gorgeous Autumnal shoot includes one of the most beautiful grazing boards I’ve ever seen, along with a dreamy looking cake, fabulous florals and balloons too! The styling is stunning, the team were going for a woodland meets industrial look and I think they’ve got it spot on…how about you?
There really is nothing more lovely than a pub lunch at your favourite local with your family. So why not do that for your wedding day?! Gemma and Tom’s gorgeous rustic luxe wedding at The Plough, Bolnhurst is as stylish and pretty as it is cosy and welcoming. The food sounded incredible too, complete with a Farm House Table for guests in the evening – think local cheeses, chutneys, homemade bread and gourmet sausage rolls. Yum. In fact, combined with the rich colours and abundance of foliage, this wedding is like a very stylish, grown up version of a harvest festival.
Please get yourselves a hot cuppa and settle down somewhere comfortable for this one, as it’s such a gorgeous, heartfelt wedding day that you’ll really want to savour it. Esha and Thom’s write up left me beaming from ear to ear, it truly is one of the loveliest reports from a couple I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. The pair’s village hall wedding was all about doing things their way and it’s just a joy to behold. I’m not going to give away too many spoilers, but make sure you look out for Esha’s pitstop at her Grandma’s house before the ceremony, Thom’s wild entrance and the couple’s clever ways of making their ceremony completely unique.
I don’t think there could be a more suitable person to have captured it either, Alline from Beatrici Photography and Esha and Thom go together like gin and tonic. It’s such a gorgeous day everyone, enjoy!
This is one of those weddings where every last detail has been thought through and the result is just gorgeous. There are pink roses everywhere, all over the tables, and even climbing the marquee poles, the fashion is simply swoon worthy – sequinned bridesmaids dresses anyone?! And then there’s the olive oil favours which look incredible and are also a sweet nod to Eleni’s Granddad who couldn’t travel over to the UK for the wedding.
Rugby School at the height of Autumn is so striking – that wall of leaves in shocking reds and oranges is a fabulous backdrop to the couple shots and echoes the red brick buildings perfectly. All of the details and special moments have been captured by the wonderful Rebecca from A Thing Like That. Enjoy lovely ones, I think the detail might just blow you away…
Oh hello gorgeous Autumn wedding at Elmore Court…
Kate and Will’s big day is filled to the brim with flowers, delicious decor details and lovely dresses. Kate looks amazing in Pronovias and her best girls look beautfiul in sequinned gowns from ASOS. A self confessed RMW addict, Kate found her photographer Maryanne Weddings right here on these very pages, and fell in love with her dreamy style. We’re big fans too – everything she shoots seems to turn into gold and the results are simply stunning.
Enjoy this sumptuous wedding, it’s a beautiful one to pour over this Saturday morning.
Kathryn Hopkins is one seriously talented lady. Not only did she style this shoot and make the gorgeous dress Laura is wearing, but she also shot the whole thing too! How many skills can one woman have?!
Those of you with beady eyes will recognise model Laura as our new real Bride, who we introduced at lunchtime. Laura blogs over at Tiny Twisst but will be blogging about the truths of wedding planning, warts and all, right here on Rock My Wedding.
I love this interpretation of Autumn, focusing on softness and serenity rather than the bold hues we are so used to seeing when it comes to Fall.
In October last year, I attended a course with several of our wonderful recommended suppliers that was centred around flowers and feasting, specifically making the most of British produce. Forage and Feast was hosted by the magical Nancarrow Farm, with stylish ladies The Garden Gate Flower Company guiding us through the florals (all grown at their family farm). We celebrated the bounty of the late summer food and floral harvest, decorated the incredible new ceremony space at Nancarrow, The Rusty Barn, and ate a rather large amount of delicious cake.
Here are the styled images from the course, if you’d like to see. Coming soon will be a behind the scenes, so you can get a real idea of what planning and styling a wedding at Nancarrow would be like and see how The Garden Gate Flower Company work. Gorgeous images come from the lovely Ross Talling, whose atmospheric, unobtrusive style we love and the dreamy, swoon inducing super 8 film comes from equally lovely Caroline and Chris at Baxter and Ted.
